There are a number of options to get to the start line (E. Mall and Thunderbird Blvd) on race day:

  • Transit:
    • Regular bus service. The following bus routes service UBC in time for race start on Sunday morning, including the R4, #14, and #49 (first bus only). Use the translink trip planner for further details and best options.
    • Additional bus service: We have added three buses to the Translink schedule to help our runners get to race start: these include one #25 bus leaving King Edward and Cambie at 6:20am, and two #99 buses leaving Commercial/Broadway Stn at 6:15am and 6:30am and following the regular #99 route. These buses require the regular passenger fares. Please note, due to the closure of W. Broadway at MacDonald for Greek Day, this #99 service will reroute to W. 4th Avenue at MacDonald and will not serve regular #99 stops on W. Broadway west of MacDonald.
